My novelette "A Stranger Comes to Kalimpura" clocked in at 14,000 words in first draft yesterday. By my usual standards, this is an incredibly loose, rough draft. I like the beginning and the end, but I'm not so sure about the middle.
Still, it's a story, about Green at around 26 years of age. She's a different woman, with a different role in the world, but still her charmingly ruthless and determined self.
